Celebrating the Annual Canadian National Arabian & Half-Arabian Championship Show
The Canadian National Arabian and Half-Arabian Championship Horse Show is returning to Brandon, Manitoba for the sixth year. Join the Arabian Horse Association (AHA) as they celebrate the beauty and versatility of Arabian & Half-Arabian horses, in Canadian style and flair.
The show begins, Sunday, August 14 and runs through Saturday, August 20 at the Keystone Centre in Brandon. Standing alone as the only AHA championship show that offers a full range of competition with Canadian flair, Arabian horse trainers, exhibitors and their horses travel from all over Canada and the United States to participate.
Spectators can enjoy over 200 different classes in youth, Western, dressage, hunter and English disciplines, and much more. Class sessions begin at 8 am, 1 pm and 7 pm, and admission and parking for the horse show is FREE to the general public.
Also, be sure to celebrate Armed Forces Day with us on Friday, August 19. Come watch the show and support Canadian and U.S. military troops by wearing red all day long. A special flag presentation will be exhibited just prior to the evening session.
If you are interested in learning more about Arabian horses, join us at the show for our Total Arabian Interactive Learning (T.A.I.L.) tours held on the grounds. Tours will be given Thursday, August 18 at 6 pm; Friday, August 19, at 10 am, 2 pm, and 6 pm; and Saturday, August 20, at 10 am and 2 pm. T.A.I.L Tours give an insider perspective of the Arabian breed and the horse show.
Plus, travel back in time and learn a little history of the Arabian breed in a mini-museum exhibit, that tells visitors more about the Arabian horse. Tours and the museum exhibit are FREE to the public.
As the premier Canadian event for Arabian horses, this show is the culmination of dedication, hard work and big dreams. Amateur and professional exhibitors alike come together to put on an impressive display of the magic and versatility of the Arabian breed.
